Copyright law is a fundamental aspect of intellectual property (“IP”) law that focuses on safeguarding the creative expression of ideas across various forms, including literary works, musical works, dramatic works, and visual works.

Copyright cannot be employed to safeguard mere ideas, which fall under the purview of patent law. Furthermore, copyright does not protect facts or information itself, although it does safeguard the creative expression or presentation of factual content.
Securing copyright registration involves a straightforward process facilitated by the assistance of our IP attorneys. We collaborate with clients to prepare and file the necessary paperwork with the Copyright Office, including the application, the requisite fee, and a copy of the work being registered.
